    black are outdatted followers...green are updated but will still "tilt".

    I've upgraded all my mags with the Mag-Pull no-jam followers. i've TRIED to make these things malfunction and they wont. Best AR investment I ever made by far.

    Just get some cheap, used AR mags and get you some Mag-Pull followers. Nevertheless, you should be fine with the green ones.

    They come in packages of 3 and are the best followers for AR-15s I have ever seen.

    Those C-Products mags that are on 44mag are probably the best buy out there for a good quality mag. The followers in them are made by Magpul and are their no-tilt upgrade to the standard GI follower. For less than $8 they really can't be beaten. Color means nothing on them as it's just preference, nothing else.

    I have no idea...but you can tell they are MagPul followers by the hole in the middle, not by the color.

    I've been very satisfied with the CProduct mags I've used. They're a bargain at the prices they're going for now.

    I think the Gun Broker in Tigard had some recently.........The only problem with buying them locally is they cost more. You can usually find them at the expo gun show for 11.00 to 12.00. At the gun stores around Portand they usually run about 20.00

    I'm about out of the CP mags, but have a bunch of the DSG I'm selling, non-tilt followers. $8/ea.

    The aluminum C-products are as good as any of the mil-spec mags with anti tilt followers and are a bargain at that price. The stainless steel C-products mags are about as good as any mag available. My "best" mags are my C-products stainless with the magpul followers, upgraded with CMMG twisted wire springs.
    Copes distributing regularly carries the followers for .99, but all they have right now are the ones for the stainless mags which DO NOT work in aluminum mags.

    I think the ones I have are the stainless, with their in-house anti-tilts.
